Chocolate is always associated with such negative words like sinful or Devil’s food. Why so bad when it tastes SO good?
Perhaps because it consumes me. Really. I baked brownies last night when we had company over for dinner. Even though I was full, I ate two. And what was the first thing I put in my mouth when I woke up? Another brownie — even before my morning coffee! It’s sad, really. My younger two kids catch me often sneaking sweet treats because I “smell like chocolate.” My older two probably know better than to say something after all these years. 😉
I complain often about how unhealthy I feel, how little energy I have, and how nothing I own fits me comfortably anymore. Yet, here I am eating half a pan of brownies in the past 24 hours.

Hi, my name is Bethany. And I’m completely addicted to chocolate.
Now I just need to stop bringing it into my home.
